Most of the courses are pretty good places that are all pretty similar. Modern big name designs kept in good condition but often in housing developments. I prefer a course with a bit more character.
I use it primarily as a way to play golf in places that we're already going or stopping through.
If you are looking for golf trips I'd recommend places with lots of clubcorp courses. Atlanta, Palm Springs and Toronto would be my recommendations for a ClubCorp golf trip.
Now for dining. You will leave paying something. At a minimum it will be the service charge. If you have a drink you'll pay for that. If you have more than two people in your family it will get expensive quick. Our usual bill is about $50 (wife and I). We go because it's a reason to dress up, the food is like the golf courses (consistently better than average) and the views are usually great from the tops of tall buildings. We make regular visits to Chicago and the two dining locations there offer wonderful views from the top of two of tallest buildings in a city (Willis/Sears and Aon).

Pete Dye was the best I played but as AOG said they are no longer part of the program.
Played carmel valley ranch 3 weeks ago. A great track but not worth building a vacation around.
Bedford springs was worth a few hour drive...checkout Toronto!

The nice thing about the business clubs is they usually have a dedicated place for people to work, so if you're killing a couple of hours before a flight, you can stop in there, grab a place to sit (in Tampa they had little rooms with sliding doors for privacy), then grab dinner before heading to the airport. I liked that.
Haven't played any golf courses that I would consider bad. All have been fine or better. What it really does is takes out all the research you'd have to do if you were going to be in a city you've never golfed in before. Just use the benefits finder and you have your options in front of you. Playing for $25-$35 is nice too. The concierge line is very helpful.
I dropped my home ClubCorp club membership and stayed on via the Alumni Travel program. Played 22 rounds at out-of-town ClubCorp properties last year. It's a great value if you use it that much.

Down here in Dayton/Cinci they've got some pretty good options. I have a view of Dayton CC from my house and it's a fun course. I also recommend the Traditions course down near Cinci.
It's nice for you they consider Columbus a separate region with just the one course and then Dayton/Cinci are another region with 3 complimentary courses and 2 with preferred rates.
